The wait was dreadful, and it didn't help that there was an odd call ahead system that you would have to know about. The front desk girls were rude and mostly chatting with each other more than greeting and helping customers. The food, once we finally were seated, was quite good, so we would probably return at an earlier hour,... More

We've make it a point to try to eat here every time we visit Estes Park. The food is very good and the prices are not too high. When there are several of us we order the sampler platter and nobody leaves the table hungry. The chicken, brisket, ribs, and pulled pork are all excellent and they have 4 choices... More

Maybe my husband & I aren't that picky with our food. We thought this was a good place for BBQ. We got there at the beginning of the dinner hour & we were seated right away. The food was tasty & the prices were fair. Someone complained in another review about the décor -- it's a BBQ place. If you... More

We had dinner and enjoyed it very much. It seems to always be busy no matter the hour. We were lucky and had a short wait. It's popularity is well deserved. The menu is varied and prices very fair. The ribs were delicious as well as the pulled pork. The sides were also very good. Our service was pleasant and... More

After spending an entire day in Rocky Mountain National Park, we were seriously on empty. Only two of us weighing in at under 300lbs and we ordered the family platter! Best priced BBQ we've ever seen. They gave us so much food we couldn't believe it. The sauce is right there on the table for use until your heart's content.... More

We loved our take-out dinner from Smokin' Dave's. It's no wonder that there are lots of people willing to wait for a seat at the restaurant. We got a sampler including all the types of meat and sides that they offered. We had plenty of food for dinner and for left-overs the following day. I strongly recommend you call in... More

The food here was delicious. One of the best meals we had in Estes Park. My husband says the wings are the best he has ever had. I would recommend going in an off time. Its gets pretty busy during prime meal time. Don't miss this place!

We dream about this place when we are back home and we eat here twice in the week we are in town. The BBQ here is to die for... seriously. I haven't been able to get anything but the catfish po boy until this trip. Tried the St. Louis ribs (we are from St Louis) and they were FANTASTIC. Everything... More

Amazing smoked chicken wings! Great, fun atmosphere. They had a good beer selection too. Good selection of sides, pulled pork, and brisket! Our family thought this was our best meal in Estes Park!
